Top 15 Dog Safety Tips
2. Always Walk Your Dog on a Leash When Away from Home
Even if your dog is well trained, always keep him or her on a leash when in a public place. This ensures that you have control over where the dog goes. Dogs may be startled by unexpected noises or activity or may be drawn to something further away from you. That could spell disaster if your pet wants to see what’s going on across the street as traffic speeds by. It also allows you to keep your pet away from people who may be afraid of dogs or other canines who don’t like their own kind. Besides, it’s the law in many communities.
